ROYAL FLUSH
(D. Miller - E. Gregory)
DARNELL MILLER & The Swing Kings (STARDAY 45-422, 1959)

Well, loving you baby is just like a game of poker
You have all the aces, I always draw a joker

Well, over on your porch last night while sitting in the swing
You played me a hand of poker for a diamond engagement ring

Now, being a gent I couldn't, although I wanted to
To ask you how you had your aces, but I already had two

Now, honey I got a feeling this game I play with you
Just isn't on the level, but baby what can I do

You always know the right cards to play at the right time
If my straight runs four to eight, then yours runs five to nine

Now, baby I'm gonna quit playing this game of love with you
'Cause you're always a-winning while I'm losing out for you

So, if you'll be my little wife, I'll tell you what I'll do
Instead of playing poker, I'll play house with you

Well, loving you baby is just like a game of poker
You have all the aces, I always draw a joker
